Bake Sale Day!

Bake Sale days are dangerous.

Someone on our campus has made, every year, for the United Way bake sale, these candies she calls "Chocolate Volcanos." This is a chunk of home-made marshmallow smothered in home-made caramel smothered in smooth dark chocolate. It's actually better than See's "Scotchmallow," which is one of my favorites. They are to die for. And there were Scotcheroos and Mud Pies, too. I was very bad. Hey, it's for a good cause, right?

But my camera's batteries died, and so I missed out on getting an awesome picture of Bo, who climbed up on Barb's lap while she was in the recliner, and curled up there with his tongue lolling out. I was sad. Batteries were put in charger, and so Wednesday's picture will be something less fun.

As you go northward in the Valley, houses get larger and their yards become xeroscaped (desert landscaping instead of grass). I took a picture of this fairly impressive Joshua tree in someone's front yard.

omg those things sound like something you might want to beg the recipe for...

ooo glad to see someone having a natural desert yard

If I knew who made 'em, I would! I think I asked a few years back but the person didn't share! *whimper*

There are some, mostly north of Camelback, or out in Scottsdale (when I was growing up in Tucson, natural desert landscaping was the norm).

aw that would be bad.

yes I did notice that of Tucson and appreciated it...except for the idiot diabetics who'd walk barefoot outside and come in with spines in their insensate feet

I could try again and see if things have changed... that was when I was on the United Way Committee, a few years ago.

Of course, it could also be a BAD thing for me to have that recipe -- as it is, I have them only once a year!

That's more to blame on stupid people than the landscaping...

yes i would need this recipe like i need shot

and yes, but being diabetic and knowing what could happen doesn't make ME wear my shoes either

Of course, making marshmallows is a time-consuming task... (oh, the ways to justify something!)

hahaha yes that is true. I'm too lazy for that

There are some pretty ones! I'd love to do it with our yard but it's a HUGE initial monetary output!

Happy Friday! {hug!}
